Selling Houses Australia

Reno Recap: Bensville, NSW

This fun-loving couple have enjoyed a fabulous life in Bensville, but now it's time to downsize.

Margie and David have raised three children in their four-bedroom Central Coast property - but now it’s time for them to sell their home of 16 years and purchase something smaller.

The suburb of Bensville is a coastal, family-friendly area with a fun, outdoors lifestyle. While Margie and David's property is well situated, the house is dark, dated and worn, which has impacted its interest, being on the market for almost six months.

As the children have flown the coop, it's time for Margie and David's next chapter in a smaller property.

A healthy local market gives Margie and David potential to reach their asking price of $750,000, but not without giving the property a refresh. While the home is in a good location, it needs a good clean up and a bright face lift. Can a light-filled renovation ensure the sale of this family home?



The verdict

After going to auction, Margie and David accepted an offer of $745,000 -  a great sucess considering the recent downturn in the market. The fun-loving couple are now able to begin their next adventure and let a new family enjoy the gorgeous home.
